Bolt to blow off cob­webs

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

USAIN Bolt re­turns to ac­tion, af­ter a six- week in­jury- en­forced break, in the 100m at the Lon­don Diamond League meet­ing to­day with ques­tion marks hang­ing over his fit­ness and form.

Just four weeks out from the World Cham­pi­onships in Bei­jing, Bolt will be hop­ing to find the Mi­das touch that took him to Olympic gold on the same east Lon­don track in 2012.

The 28- year- old Ja­maican last raced on June 13, when he strug­gled to get the bet­ter of his 19- year- old train­ing part­ner, the An­guil­lan- born Bri­tish re­cruit Zhar­nel Hughes, over 200m in New York.

Bolt has since had treat­ment for a pelvic prob­lem from Dr Hans- Wilhelm Muller- Wo­hfahrt – the 72- year- old Ger­man sports doc­tor known as “Heal­ing Hans’’.
